Adobe Acrobat Professional & TechSmith Snag-It! Now Available!

We now have enough Adobe Acrobat Professional licensing available for every employee at the university.  In addition, we have enough Snag-It! licenses to place on every university owned computer. If you are interested in either of these titles, please call the Technology Assistance Center. Future employee computer replacement software loads will include both titles and eventually all classroom and lab software loads will include Snag-It! If you have questions or would like more information, please call 231-591-4822.
